She has chosen the Enchanter class. Her character is great at both recovery and attack skills, and she also is the only one in the party who wields element-bestowing skills.
Vert's adult appearance and overall figure remains the same. However, she is wearing a more elven themed outfit. She has leaves and flowers on her hair as accessories. She wears a short green and white sleeveless silky mini-skirt decorated with a golden leaf and flower pattern. The white in her skirt area is a bit see-through. Below her shoulders are white clothes wrapped elegantly as sleeves. On her right arm is a two bracelets held together by an X. On the left arm and thigh is a plant shaped bracelet. She wears brown boots.
Vert is a very kind and mature woman who often plays the maternal role of the CPUs due to not having a sister herself. she is shown to be very caring to others and very wise, but can also be playful at times as well. She is shown to be the most level headed out of the Goddesses at most times.
Vert logs in to find Neptune, Noire and Blanc already logged in. She apologizes for being the last one here. Neptune greets her and wonders what her outfit and class is. It looks elven.
Vert explains that she is the Enchanter class, the only class to bestow attributes to players depending on the situation. Neptune observes that Noire and Vert have switched the weapons, they wield in real life. Vert notices that everyone did change but with all the balance of their classes, they will be a splendid party.
With the initial dialogue out of the way, Neptune decides to introduce everyone else to the player. While Noire and Blanc are annoyed at Neptune's description of them, Vert is excited as she heard "little sister". Neptune gets worried and tells the girls that this was their imagination. Noire does not buy it. Neptune quickly shifts the party's focus to the tutorial and runs off. Noire chases her.
Vert agrees with Neptune and urges Blanc to get the tutorial started. Vert can't wait to try out the combat system. Vert takes the time to appreciate the fact that while they normally compete they can work together in this game. Vert tells them the party shares a common destiny and no one should go off and solo.
Neptune, Noire and Blanc think Vert is the first to go solo. Vert assures them for this one time, she will not concern herself with rank or completion. She will sincerely explore the world, make new friends and tell others about the game as this is her responsibility of being granted early-access by the 4 Goddesses Online management.
Blanc and Neptune are shocked. Noire respects Vert for her decision. Vert thanks Noire and thinks they should now all enjoy themselves. This episode of 4 Goddesses Online takes place in a different world and the idea of starting at level 1 gets Vert all excited.
At the tutorial event point, a NPC arrives and introduces herself as Bouquet, a guardian spirit, Royal Geist. She is sent by the Goddesses to guide them. Bouquet begins to explain the story of the world but Vert grabs her and embraces her. She asks Bouquet to be her little sister. Bouquet notes that her vision is blocked by the "bouncy bouncy". Noire pulls Vert back.
Blanc can't stand the "bouncy bouncy" remark but she notices that Bouquet reacted in real time to Vert's actions. She wonders how this is possible. Vert thinks it is nice of Blanc to notice as one of the features of this game is an advanced communication AI that can learn. Since this is Planeptune's technology, Noire and Blanc are eager to defend their nation in being better than Planeptune. Vert reminds the girls that the real world is irrelevant.
Bouquet has a nosebleed. She has never experienced the "bouncy bouncy" and notes that they cannot be taken lightly. Neptune scolds Vert for her earlier actions. Vert could not help it as her ideal little sister just appeared. Noire calms Vert down and urges everyone to listen to Bouquet's story.
Bouquet explains that long ago the 4 Goddesses descended from the Divine Realm to an empty world. Purple Heart, the Goddess of Fate, Black Heart, the Goddess of Prosperity, White Heart, the Goddess of Order, and Green Heart, the Goddess of Fertility created Alsgard, home to the World Tree Leanverde aka Tree of Life. That tree is the source of all magic in this world and created all life. 1000 years ago, the Goddesses sealed up the Demon King Jester, who tried to take Leanverde's magic. However, that took a toll of them and Leanverde's restorative magic could not restore the Goddesses. The Goddesses left Sacred Treasures which housed their remaining power and retreated to the Divine Realm to heal.
Before the Goddesses left, they told Bouquet's great great great grandmother, the Royal Geist at the time that "When the world is in danger once again those carrying our blessings shall appear. Grant them the sacred treasures, and call to us. Keep guard of the treasures until that comes". The adventurers before Bouquet are the "Chosen Ones". She requests they gather the Sacred Treasures at Tetyu Temple to revive the 4 Goddesses.
Now that they know the final boss, Blanc wants to know what they have to do first. Bouquet tells them to head to Wishuel, a city just pass this forest, an adventurer's hub. Afterwards, they should head to Cautlprim Cathedral where the 4 Goddesses are worshiped.
Vert understands. Bouquet wishes them all good luck. The forest is to test and train all potential "Chosen Ones". She tells them to learn at their own pace to navigate Alsgard and says her goodbyes. Vert stops Bouquet to ask her if they will meet again. Bouquet explains that her mission is to guide adventurers who can be the "Chosen Ones". If they are the "Chosen Ones", they will meet again in the Cathedral.
Vert is happy to hear that and hopes to deepen their friendship. Bouquet tells Vert to go easy on her. Noire apologizes on behalf of Vert and tells her not to worry about Vert. Vert is sad to leave Bouquet but resigns to meet her eventually in the Cathedral. Neptune tells Bouquet they will see her soon.
The party handles the forest easily. Closer, to the end of the forest, Neptune notes that she is getting the hang of the controls. She wonders if everyone is the same but hears a noise. Neptune wonders what it is. Vert thinks it is the tutorial boss. Neptune thinks there is nothing to fear. Vert assures them that even if they used their bare hands, the boss would fall to them.
The party easily defeats the boss. Vert can't wait to get to Wishuel. In Wishuel, Blanc wants to take a look at the shops. Vert wants to see Bouquet in Cautlprim Cathedral. Blanc is okay with Vert's plan as there is likely an important event first. They can always check out the shop later. Neptune wants them to let her pick what to do.
Vert and Neptune enjoy the atmosphere of Wishuel. Vert is glad Neptune likes it and notes that one must be immersed in the environment to spend many hours in the game. Noire and Blanc think Neptune is becoming addicted to 4 Goddesses Online. It may be too late for Neptune.
Neptune starts to worry that she will end up like Vert. Vert is hurt by the fact everyone thinks it is so bad to be like her. Noire tells Vert to stop with the fake tears. Blanc stops joking around and admits that Wishuel is beautiful and understands how one can pass the time in this game.
Later, Noire wonders what online games everyone has been playing. Neptune has been playing online games largely on her console, not PC. She happily remembers the time she was accused of hacking when she got a rare item as item drops were especially rare in those games. The game ended its services so Neptune is playing the sequel as well as 4 Goddesses Online. Neptune wonders what Blanc has been playing.
Blanc has been playing a MMO based on a well-known RPG. Kids like the game, as it is easy to pick up. However, she is busy with Lowee so she has not logged in for a while. Blanc's plans are to play 4 Goddesses Online now.
Noire is happy that the two play a decent amount.
Neptune plays online games on consoles, Blanc plays a MMO based on a well-known RPG, Noire plays an RPG after it got its remake but all the Goddesses are also play 4 Goddesses Online. Neptune knows it is not worth asking but Vert is playing 4 Goddesses Online. Vert confirms that she is and she also played all the games the other Goddesses mentioned. She even likes World Break Online noting that it was great.
The other Goddesses all remember World Break Online. World Break Online had a error during their maintenance causing all services to end. In addition, the company went under. Vert liked World Break Online as much as 4 Goddesses Online yet only memories remain of that game. Vert can't stand remembering that grim day and wants to return to the previous discussion.
Vert notices that everyone has some gaming experience and if they need any help they can rely on her. Neptune remarks that Vert's glowing face coupled with her previous statement makes her look like a Goddess. Vert reminds Neptune that she is a Goddess. Neptune says it was just a figure of speech but she will lean on Vert. Vert is happy to let Neptune lean on her but she tells Neptune she will not carry her. Blanc is relieved to have Vert in their party, she can take her time to get used to the game.
Vert tells them getting experience is in gaming is important. Eventually the should naturally acquire the ability to play for 96 hours straight. Noire reminds Vert that is 4 days and asks how does one "naturally acquire" the ability to do that. Blanc thinks one would fall asleep half way at most. Vert explains that ignoring rest is a basic requirement for online gaming and she can last 4 days with the help of special drinks. Neptune warns the audience to not try anything Vert is suggesting.
At the 4th night, Vert wonders if her real self is in the game and if her real self is just a virtual avatar. Noire wonders what happens to people like Vert when games like World Break Online end. Blanc has heard about people staging protests outside the game company demanding that the game be kept online. Neptune finds that ridiculous as all they need to do is start over in another game. Vert urges them to avoid that topic.
Near a bulletin board, Vert explains that one can request or search for parties, ask for strategies and tips and chat. One can greatly expand their world. Noire thinks they should try to use it to their advantage. Neptune remarks that with this board, even a lonely Noire can make 100 friends. Noire demands Neptune take that back and chases her down. Blanc sighs and notes that Noire always loses her cool. Vert tells Blanc that the online community can be coarse and Blanc should build some resistance to instigation. Blanc angrily agrees but asks Vert who has been instigating her all this time.
Afterwards, the party heads into the Cathedral. Vert is awe. Neptune points out the statue of the 4 Goddesses. Neptune and Noire prefer the Goddess that were based on them. Blanc think White Heart is just lovely and inspiring praising the designer for fantastic taste. Vert tells Blanc if she wants inspiration, she should look at Green Heart's figure. One can get inspired by her voluptuousness. Blanc angrily asks why Vert is singling her out.
Noire remarks that the people here definitely worship the Goddesses. Bouquet appears and welcomes the Chosen Ones to Cautlprim Cathedral. Vert is overjoyed to see Bouquet and embraces her. Vert thinks their names sound sisterly and wonder if they were separated at birth. Bouquet thinks the "bouncy bouncy" feels softer and has a nosebleed.
Noire pulls Vert away from Bouquet while Blanc heals Bouquet's nosebleed. Bouquet explains that to save the world, they need to awaken the four Goddesses. Vert agrees that they need the power of the Goddesses to defeat the Demon King. Neptune wonders why the Goddesses don't just return on their own. They should know that their world needs them.
Bouquet tells Neptune she was going to get to that part. The Goddesses exhaust a great deal of their strength to come to Alsgard. Normally Leanverde would restore them but the damage they sustained from the Demon King could not be healed by Leanverde. They had to return to the Divine Realm but the Demon King cursed them to be unable to wake up if they returned to the Divine Realm.
They need to gather the Sacred Treasures to build a rainbow bridge to the Divine Realm to awaken the 4 Goddesses. The Sacred Treasures, they need are the Amethyst Glass, Black Diamond Sword, Moonstone Hairpin and Emerald Mirror. Those treasures are sealed to prevent misuse and only the Chosen Ones should release the seal. Unfortunately, a powerful dark magic broke the seal and 2 of the Sacred Treasures ended up in the hands of the followers of the Demon King. The alliance of Paladins and Black Knights are attempting to retrieve the treasures but are having difficulty fighting the strong monsters.
Neptune asks for the location of the two treasures that are not stolen. Bouquet tells her they are in Logi Mountain and Yiear Forest. Noire wants to go to any one of the two as they are certain to get a Sacred Treasure. Vert chooses Logi Mountain. Blanc asks Vert for her reasons. When Vert hears a mountain, she must climb it. That is what her heart says as well as that is the recommended level progression. Neptune wonders if Vert just has a feeling that there are rare items there. Vert tries to deny that and they should focus on saving Bouquet and this world. Once they get the Sacred Treasures Vert can have her union with Bouquet and all the Goddesses.
Bouquet anxiously wonders what sort of bouncy fate awaits her. Blanc finds all of this ridiculous and hopes Vert is not a bad influence on the AI. Noire promises to control Vert so Bouquet does not have to worry and would appreciate her advice along their adventure. Bouquet accepts Noire's offer and looks forward to their next meeting. Vert notes that a little sister is like an elusive shadow. The more she chases her, the more she flees. Perhaps she should try drawing her in. She decides to pray in the Cathedral so her feelings will reach Bouquet.
The party heads over to Logi Mountain. Vert promises to support the party with all her gaming instincts. Neptune is glad to have a reliable game junkie in their party. Vert urges the party to get going and acquire the first Sacred Treasure.
Near the end of the dungeon, Neptune wonders if this is the place Bouquet mentioned. Bouquet appears and is glad they made it all the way safely. Vert is glad to see Bouquet and embraces her. Bouquet struggles and tries to tell Vert she wanted to tell her for a long time. Vert embracing Bouquet is rather embarrassing for her. Vert thinks that is nonsense as they are sisters and wants to spoil her more. Bouquet notes that when she is surrounded by the bouncy, her head fuzzy as if she was hypnotized.
Blanc notes that Vert stated that they were sisters like fact. Noire notes that Bouquet seems to be warming up to Vert and asks if she is okay. Bouquet returns to her senses and points them to a small shrine. Neptune notices a monument in it. Bouquet explains that they need to write a spell to the monument to get the Sacred Treasure, Amethyst Glass. Neptune realizes that they need a password so she decides to enter in "pudding is the best thing in the world". Vert tries "My adorable little sisters, Nepgear and Bouquet hehehehehehehe". Noire tells the two to stop. She knows this goes against their characters but they should take this seriously for once-. Neptune and Vert get the Amethyst Glass.
Bouquet congratulates them and now the two of them have the power of the Awakening. Blanc cannot believe that is the password. Bouquet explains the game is still in beta therefore the password for the monument is not implemented and any password works. Neptune knows it is word coming from her but Bouquet should not be breaking the fourth wall.
Bouquet tells them to treat as if it was a notice from the administrator. This game is a beta so to test her learning capabilities, she has no filters against her speech except for confidential and banned terms. When the game is released, her speech will likely be restricted to not break player immersion. Vert is concerned and wonders if this is the only time to talk to Bouquet's true self and if she will forget about the time they spent together. Bouquet does not know if her memories will be erased and believes that is dependent on adventurers like them.
Neptune agrees and remembers a story about how an AI learned strange things then had to be frozen. She tells everyone to not teach Bouquet weird things. Vert tells her not to worry as she will protect the memories with her life. Her love for Bouquet will overcome all obstacles.
Blanc decides to enter "Password" to the monument. Noire decides to enter a password which is Lastation's birthday and 123. Noire and Blanc also receive the Amethyst Glass.
Since the mission is accomplished Vert wants to spend some quality private time with Bouquet. Bouquet asks her to do something not overwhelming. Vert is glad she is accepted and decides to play tag. She asks Bouquet to chase her. Bouquet tells her to wait and chases her.
The party returns to Wishuel. Noire receives a message from Uni. She is playing the 4 Goddesses Online Beta as well. Vert notes that only high ranking players from 4 Goddesses Online can get keys. If she is high ranking, Vert would like to invite Uni to her guild. Noire tells her that Uni is not interested in these types of games. She likes FPS games which means she got her key from... Neptune says it was Nepgear, her little sister that won the keys from a prize. She gave Uni, Rom and Ram and they are all playing together.
Vert cannot believe that they are all in this world right now. She wants to meet up with them immediately. Noire reports that they already got the first Sacred Treasure and are returning to Wishuel. Blanc thinks they should wait in the plaza for the candidates' return. Vert can't wait for her lovely Nepgear. Neptune thinks it's nice that Vert likes Nepgear but she is her little sister and tells Vert not to forget that.
Later, the candidates return. Neptune is about to start up a conversation with her sister. Vert wants to introduce the audience to her little sister, Nepgear and embraces her. Nepgear tells Vert to stop squishing her so hard but notes that this does feel warm. Neptune notes that Nepgear has been afflicted with a status effect and complains that Vert already has Bouquet.
Vert explains that she is an adult woman and can have as many little sisters as need be. Besides Blanc has two little sisters despite... and glances at Blanc. Blanc gets annoyed and reminds her that chest size has nothing to do with having little sisters. Vert wonders why Blanc is taking about chest size. She has never mentioned anything about that. Blanc is able to lash out at Vert until Rom and Ram stop her. Vert is glad that their party has doubled. Nepgear thinks they will have twice the fun.
When the party first arrives in Tetyu Temple without getting all the Sacred Treasures. Noire and Blanc are upset that Neptune would come here instead getting the rest of the Sacred Treasures. Neptune wants the cool things here that they can miss. Vert tells Neptune the choice is hers. They can look around and earn money in the ruins.
The party has made it to an altar in Tetyu Temple. Bouquet appears and welcomes them. Vert is glad that fate has allowed the two sisters to reunite. Bouquet tells Lady Vert that she is not her sister unless she is remembering that incorrectly. Vert tells Bouquet to not be so formal with her as they are quite close. Bouquet admits that they do know each other but...
Neptune notices that Bouquet is not as awkward around Vert. Noire wonders if Vert has a brainwashing ability where she can insert herself as someone's sister. Vert tells Noire not to say something so horrid. Only love can accomplish this. Bouquet decides to explain that this is the altar where they will offer the Sacred Treasures to release the Goddesses. It is the closest place in Alsgard to the Divine Realm. Due to the recent increase in monsters, less and less people have been making a pilgrimage here. Their presence pleases the Goddesses.
Neptune offers the Amethyst Glass. Purple Heart's voice can be heard. She gives the Chosen Ones blessings from the Goddesses and the party acquires the Source of Life.
Neptune is happy the trip was worth it. They are all more pumped. Vert promises as the older sister of Bouquet she will gather all the Sacred Treasures. Bouquet wishes them good luck in their journey. Neptune retrieves her Amethyst Glass and the party returns to Wishuel.
Now that the party has expanded thanks to the candidates Vert wants to name the party. Nepgear wonders what it should be and suggests everyone spout whatever comes to mind.
Neptune wants "Goddess Communications". Noire does not hate it but fears it is too long. She suggests "Goddess Talk". Neptune tells Noire if she is going to change it that little, they may as well keep her suggestion. Blanc wants something more related to Gamindustri. She suggests "8 Bit" as there are 8 of them. Vert does not hate the idea but what if their group grows. Nepgear suggests EXE Drivers but thinks it may be too flashy. Uni would use the words "Platoon" or "Army" then squish them with other words but that is just weird with just 8 of them. Ram thinks since they are all Goddesses, they should go with "The Goddesses". Rom agrees and also suggests going for "The Guardian Goddesses".
Neptune thinks its cute but might be too long. She wonders if there is another way to word it. Vert remembers that in Gamindustri, they are called Console Patron Unit, so suggests "CPU". Uni likes the abbreviation. Noire is happy as they are Goddesses so this suits them. Blanc likes that its short, easy to remember with a "classic-game" feel. Ram and Rom are happy that it is easy to remember. Nepgear notices that no one is objecting and likes the name as well. Neptune declares that their party will now be known as "CPU". Vert thought they would argue more about this but is glad they settled it.
CPU then takes the Certification quest at Logi Mountain. In Logi Mountain, Neptune tries to jump to a foothold to climb higher. Noire, Blanc and Vert are displeased with this. Blanc wonders if it is okay for Neptune to fall from this high. Vert notes that they will not take damage but it will be a nuisance to climb back up again. Neptune tells them not to worry as she is confident in her platforming skills and promptly proceeds to fall off. Even if this is a game, Vert is glad she did not land on someone's head.
CPU finishes the Certification quest and returns to Wishuel. Now that their strength has gone up Vert advises them to think about party reorganization before searching for other Sacred Treasures. Nepgear notices that Vert has been rather enthusiastic about completing this game. Neptune explains that she has been targeting Bouquet, a cute little girl as her sister. That being said, Neptune claims she is still the protagonist of this game, which is called "Cyberdimension Neptunia" not "Vertia".
All that aside, Nepgear is glad to have Vert in CPU. They can all learn something about gaming from her. Vert is happy to help and tells Nepgear to not be afraid to ask for help in this game. Nepgear accepts her offer as she has never tried a Mage class and she will take any advice on using it. Vert knows Bouquet is lovely but Nepgear is just too adorable.
Neptune, Noire, Uni, Rom and Ram have a conversation to the side regarding love polygons in relation to CPU.
Vert believes the party should balanced according to the skills and expertise of each player. Noire is upset Vert would shift the topic away the moment she starts contributing. After the party reorganization, Neptune thinks they should look for the next Sacred Treasure.
Vert decides to check out the Chaos Factory shop, run by IF and Compa. IF is happy to have her. Vert knows this is off subject but she asks the two if they have seen a GM. The two of them have not. IF wonders for what reason Vert wants to see one. Vert has no reason, she was just curious in what they look like. She tells them to ignore what she just said. Compa says that just makes them more curious. She promises that if they see them, they will tell Vert. Vert thanks them.
CPU checks out the Gion Blacksmith. Blanc recognizes the owner and greets her. She wonders what she is doing here. The owner notes that it has been a long time. Neptune asks Blanc if she knows the owner. Blanc explains that the owner helped her out a long time ago. She never expected to meet her in this game. The owner introduces herself as Tamsoft and her occupation is a Blacksmith. Vert says it is their pleasure and notes that a great thing about playing online games is meeting people that you know in real life.
Tamsoft tells them to bring in the materials and she will upgrade them. She notes that they need strong weapons to beat this game so they should not hesitate to call her. Blanc promises that they will and are happy to see her.
In Wisheul, a mysterious person appears trying to sell rare items to Vert. Vert is interested and asks if it is something like a Zodiac weapon. The mysterious person says it is nothing so ordinary, it appeals to one's carnal desires. Vert starts to fantasize. The mysterious person is glad to have Vert's interest. Vert excitedly asks if the mysterious person sells pictures of Bouquet sleeping, in a swimsuit or a Bouquet's system voice files.
The mysterious person is shocked by her excitement and clarifies that she does not have something so niche. Vert takes offense to the claim that Bouquet is niche. It should be ac common angel for all to have a cute little sister. In fact Bouquet is an angel. Vert has nothing to say to someone who does not understand that and leaves.
Phiaros runs into CPU. He is happy to see them. Neptune wonders if they met this NPC before. He explains that he guards the holy Yiear Forest. He needs to request something of them, the Sacred Treasure, Black Diamond Sword has been taken by the forces of the Demon King. Phiaros asks them to retrieve all the Sacred Treasures and revive the Goddesses. He already put the request at the guild.
Since it is official, Neptune is happy to accept the quest. In the guild, they accept the request. Vert reads that this quest is in Yiear Forest. The Goddesses begin to squabble over who is going to be the most useful for this quest. Vert thinks her ability to use a sword and magic equally for any situation will make her most useful.
In Yiear Forest, Uni stops and alerts her sister to something. It is a couple of players. Since there are here, Nepgear suggests talking to them. Vert agrees.
Nepgear shows up and greets them. Kiria cuts her off stating there is no time for her and urges the princess to go ahead. The princess knows it is dangerous but relies on Kiria's protection. Kiria promises to wash away her sadness and take her pain. The two leave.
Vert thinks they were rather cheesy and expresses her displeasure for using that word to describe them, though it would be the most accurate. Blanc notes that the couple were in their own little world. They might as well have ignored them completely. Even so, Vert thought they were making the most progress in this game.
Near the end of the forest, the princess notes that CPU took their sweet time. Vert thought they were lucky and passed the couple but they got here first. Kiria brags that they didn't just get here first, the two of them defeated the boss and they have the Sacred Treasure as proof. Neptune and Vert are shocked. The princess thanks Kiria for her hard work and making her happy. She wants to reward her for her faithful service and asks what she wants.
As her faithful servant, Kiria says her words eternally reward her soul. The princess just loves how Kiria is. Kiria promises to be with the princess forever. The princess wants to go back to shop. Kiria asks to be her escort back. The princess agrees.
Vert wonders what that was all about. Here she was intending to challenge the boss together but all they did was laugh and leave. Blanc tells Vert not to think too hard about it. Vert knows there is no point in competing with them in terms of progress but this does not sit right with her.
CPU enters the end of the dungeon. CPU sees the boss and is eager to defeat it. Vert is happy with the party's spirit and the party defeats the boss.
CPU gets the Sacred Treasure, Black Diamond Sword. Bouquet appears and congratulates them on their successful retrieval of the Sacred Treasure. Vert is glad to see Bouquet. Seeing her removes all of Vert's fatigue from fighting the boss. Bouquet thanks them all for their hard work and she has something to tell them but... Blanc wonders if Bouquet is okay. Bouquet apologizes as even if this is a holy forest, the monsters' impurities are affecting her. Vert notices that Bouquet's face is flushed and she seems to be in pain as well. She as the older sister wants to nurse Bouquet as nursing scenes are essential to any game.
Bouquet wonders what nursing scenes and decides to research it. Neptune thinks Bouquet is too wobbly for that and tells her to hold it off until she recovers. Then she can study all the silly things she wants. Vert wants to return to the city and asks Bouquet to hold on to her. Alternatively, Vert offers to carry her bridal style.
Bouquet has teleportation magic so she will return to the Cathedral herself. Maybe the Goddesses' protection will remove her impurities and she will feel better. Bouquet promises to talk to them there and she teleports away. CPU returns to Wishuel.
In Wishuel, Vert wonders if Bouquet was able to return to the city. She is worried. Blanc wonders if they should head for the Cathedral for now. Neptune says that she has an errand and tells them to go on without her.
Later, Neptune runs into Vert and is glad by her timing. She asks Vert if Bouquet is back in the Cathedral. Vert says that she is in the Cathedral and she seems okay but needs rest. Vert thinks they should work on their own and asks if Neptune is done her errand. Neptune is and she shows her the Potion of Protection. She wants to give it to Bouquet. Vert is surprised that Neptune could get such an expensive potion. They should get this to Bouquet immediately. Neptune explains that Compa gave her the potion and she would like to go with Vert to Bouquet to give her the potion. Vert agrees but since Bouquet may be asleep so she asks Neptune to do her best to be quiet.
In the Cathedral, Bouquet is surprised Vert and Neptune. Vert shows Bouquet the medicine they brought. Vert explains that Neptune got this from Compa and this should make Bouquet feel better.
Bouquet thanks them and drinks the medicine. Bouquet is moved that they would do this for her and does not know how to thank them. As a candidate for older sister, Vert tells her not to worry and asks Bouquet to rely on her more. She will accept any selfish request from her younger sister. Bouquet couldn't possibly trouble her with that and her one wish is to fulfill her mission but she is happy. They are a strange bunch to go so far for a lowly NPC. Bouquet gets sleepy.
Vert notices this and tells Bouquet to get some rest. Bouquet goes to sleep. Neptune is impressed that Vert can act so natural as an older sister. She might be getting an identity crisis. Neptune wants to contribute as an older sister as well. She decides to sing a lullaby. First, Neptune needs to warm up her vocal cords. Vert tells her there is no need. If Neptune does anything to disturb her younger sister, Vert will not forgive her. Bouquet snores soundly.
Later, the remaining party arrives to see Bouquet in the city. Vert reports that she has finished the nursing event. The remaining members of CPU went out to gather gifts to help Bouquet. Bouquet is grateful for everything CPU has done for her.
To Vert, seeing Bouquet regain her strength is enough to calm the storm in her heart. She is grateful that Bouquet is feeling better. Uni is amazed that Vert can actually care for someone else. She thought Vert would just do that thing she always does when she finds someone she likes. Vert smirks and wonders what thing is Uni is talking about before hugging her and smothering her with her chest. Uni is shocked. Noire tells Vert not to take advantage of strange moments like these and to unhand her sister.
Vert thinks this moment isn't strange at all. It should be normal for an older sister to dote on her younger sister. Uni finds this really embarrassing and begins to understand what Bouquet has to go through. Bouquet does not want to interrupt but she asks if having a younger sister is all that important. Vert says it is as she is the only one without a sibling of her own. In addition, in Gamindustri, moe is still heavily trending so everyone wants a younger sister by their side.
The Lowee and Planeptune sisters offer their thoughts on younger sisters as well. Bouquet finishes her learning on that topic and records that segment in her archives. Anyways Bouquet would like to begin to explain the legend surrounding the Sacred Treasures.
The Demon King commands a duo of unrivaled leaders known as the Paramount Pair. They both lead the king's army of monsters known as the Wicked Believers. The king and his army went on a rampage that brought Alsgard to the brink of destruction. The four Goddesses fought against them but the battles were a constant struggle. The Goddesses created the Sacred Treasures and amplified their power in order to seal the king, which depleted all their power making them unable to descend to this world.
Vert notes that the Demon King and Paramount Pair are new bosses and not in the main Four Goddesses Online series. Noire asks if their plan is for the Paramount Pair to gather their forces to revive the Demon King while the Goddesses are still away. Bouquet confirms Noire's assumption. Vert's heart races at hearing at the new bosses. She promises to play in earnest from now on.
Bouquet warns that if the Demon King is revived with his full power, defeating him will be difficult. She urges them to gather the Sacred Treasure before all that can happen. Vert tells Bouquet not to worry, with her 5 younger sisters and 3 pleasant companions, they will save this world. The three other Goddesses are annoyed by what Vert has just said.
Vert tells them not to worry about the details and they should try to save the world at full speed. Neptune is happy to continue. Bouquet believes they will succeed.
CPU visits the guild. Luke, the person who runs the guild praises CPU for their timing as an important quest was just posted. It is the quest to find another Sacred Treasure. Luke explains the quest came from a report from an archeological team when they returned from the ruins. Vert asks if that means they found the Sacred Treasure.
Luke adds that while they were excavating in Oneiro Corridor, they stumbled into the boss monster who took the Sacred Treasure. The monsters nearby are also obstructing the excavation so they thought of asking adventurers to defeat the monsters and boss in one go. The researchers promise to not claim the Sacred Treasure. Their desire is for the Chosen Ones to wield it.
Rom asks Blanc what is archeology. Blanc explains that it is a science where people search for ancient objects in order to understand how people used to live their lives. For example, Lowee has old castles and pipes. Ram understands as archeologists search for old coins and fossilized mushrooms in those. Rom's eyes sparkle as she wonders if there are old coins in these ruins.
Vert finds this adorable. Vert also wants to have a study session with Bouquet one day in the ruins but she'll hold those thoughts close to her heart. Vert then says if there is a research team, then there must be treasures in these ruins. Vert wants Uni to search the ruins with her for that. Nepgear is ready to accept the quest but notices that there is also a delivery quest for the research team. She wonders if that means they should give the research team some items that aren't the treasure.
Vert thinks they should only do so when absolutely necessary, otherwise they know what to do with their items. Luke tells them he is not trying to tell them how to do their quests but the researchers aren't just going to get nothing.
In the dungeon, Neptune sees the couple again and decides to greet them. She remembers that they haven't introduced themselves yet. Neptune introduces herself but she realizes that it doesn't matter as players can see each other screens. Neptune reads Kiria and †Black Cat Princess†'s name. Vert tells Neptune that the symbols in the princess' name are not crosses but daggers. They are only decorations so Neptune does not need to pronounce them.
Kiria notices that CPU uses the name of the Goddesses of Gamindustri. †Black Cat Princess† also notices that their appearances are the same. She asks if they are impersonating them.
The four Goddesses decide to discuss this between themselves. Neptune wonders if they should hide their identities. Blanc thinks that is hardly worth answering as anyone would doubt they are actually the real Goddesses even if they said they were. Noire wonders what Vert is doing in this game with her name. Wasn't she was going by Green Heart or something in the other game.
Vert admits she was playing as †Green_Heart† but she often dodged the question of her real identity. Blanc notes that she did not set a good example considering that she used symbols in her name. Vert explains that at the time she created the character, she was afflicted with the urge to surround her names with symbols. This is not the case anymore.
†Black Cat Princess† is amused that CPU even imitates the way the Goddesses talk but she notes they need more research to roleplay as them. FKiria notes for instance, there are rumors that Lady Vert is a online game junkie but there is no way for someone so busy to be playing so many games. Vert explains that it is a simple task for a Goddess to balance work and play. Kiria and †Black Cat Princess† continue to point out the differences between the Goddesses and their real selves until Noire asks if the two of them actually met the real Goddesses. They have not.
Kiria apologizes but asks CPU to let the two of them to go. They are a bit busy. Vert tells her there is no need to rush and asks the couple humor them a little. Vert wants to consult something with them. Kiria wonders what this is about. Vert explains that in terms of story progression, the group here is the furthest ahead. The next time a difficult quest appears, they should work together.
Kiria thinks this is a foolish question as she has no intention of wielding this sword for anyone but the princess. †Black Cat Princess† finds this a wonderful suggestion. CPU does look strong especially Vert the Enchanter. †Black Cat Princess† wants to be her younger sister. Vert is shocked. †Black Cat Princess† tells her she will be admiring her from the shadows so if she could look out for her... Vert tells †Black Cat Princess† this is a little too sudden. †Black Cat Princess† implores Vert.
Noire finds it good that Vert actually has a younger sister looking for her. Blanc tells her that is right and wonders why Vert is so shaken. Neptune is glad that Vert won't claim Nepgear anymore. Vert notes that the Goddesses are finding all of this amusing and protests as being an older sister is different from being just sisters. †Black Cat Princess† pleads with Vert not to say such terrible things. She wants Vert to spoil her like a real younger sister. Luckily Kiria was able to convince †Black Cat Princess† to allow herself to be her only protector. †Black Cat Princess† apologizes for being unable to work together. Vert understands.
Kiria notices that the two of them have stayed for too long and they must hurry to the boss as soon as possible. †Black Cat Princess† says her goodbyes to everyone and the two leave. Vert notes that Kiria and †Black Cat Princess† have a playful side to them but she doesn't understand them. That aside, people using princess in their name is likely a housewife or a man.
At the end of the dungeon, Kiria and †Black Cat Princess† are being chased by the boss. Neptune suggests that they allow CPU to defeat the boss so they can all get the Sacred Treasure. Kiria does not want them to steal their kill as they already weakened it significantly. †Black Cat Princess† agrees even if its them, she cannot allow them to take this from them. Vert assures them that they would never steal a kill. At this rate, the two of them would pass out and it would be advantageous for them to work together. They reluctantly accept CPU's help.
CPU defeats the boss and everyone acquires the Moonstone Hairpin. Vert is glad to have retrieved the stolen treasure. Vert finds this fancy that it is hairpin and is disappointed in the fact that they can't actually equip it. †Black Cat Princess† is upset that even the final strike was taken from them. Kiria apologizes but that just angers †Black Cat Princess† even further. She lashes out at Kiria and accuses CPU of gloating therefore being horrible people before leaving. Kiria follows after her.
Bouquet appears and Vert is excited to see her. Bouquet praises everyone for the work. There is only one Sacred Treasure left. It is in the oldest and most sacred place in the world. Blanc asks if it is in the Altar of the Goddesses. Bouquet tells her it is not but it is a good guess.
Since it is not in the Altar, Neptune wonders if there are any other important looking buildings on the world map that they may have missed. Alternatively, it could just be unlocked now since they have progressed so far. Vert has no idea and asks Bouquet where it is. Bouquet tells them the resting place of the final Sacred Treasure is on the foot of the World Tree, Leanverde.
CPU enters the guild to accept a quest in Yiear Sea of Trees for the final Sacred Treasure. They overhear some players, Naoya, Maron and Wildcat discussing the Grim Reaper. Naoya reports that it has happened again, someone walking alone in a dungeon was insta-killed by the boss. Maron thinks it was just a newbie going into a high level dungeon. Naoya explains that it took place in the first mountain dungeon. No one knows where the Grim Reaper will strike.
Maron wonders if some newbie killing raid boss was implemented recently. She wonders what it looks like. Wildcat explains that the Grim Reaper is draped in black and has eyes, red eyes. Looking into it is looking into death itself. The Grim Reaper creeps up on you without making a sound and by the time you notice him, you're already dead. Maron was planning to gather materials but now she is too scared.
Vert is eager to try her skills against a boss that kill players instantly. For now, Neptune decides to accept the quest and CPU heads out.
In Yiear Sea of Trees, Blanc reads from the game description that Leanverde was the first thing the Goddesses created in this world. Vert adds that in this world, the story has it so that magical energy radiates from this place. This is where the final Sacred Treasure is and Noire is excited to meet the Goddesses. Vert notes according to the Guild member, there are powerful monsters here and tells everyone not to let their guard down.
Deeper in the dungeon, Neptune has found the boss and urges CPU to take down the boss and get the Sacred Treasure. She encourages everyone to Nep'Em up. Unfortunately, their attacks are not worker and the boss is beating them.
A NPC Elmia arrives. She warns them that they are not going to make it out at this rate. She urges them to hurry and get out while they still can. Neptune thinks they may have missed an event that makes this boss beatable. Vert thinks that is plausible and notes that it has been quite some time that something has given her such a scare. Elmia tells them they can talk after, for now she will use this. The boss backs off. Neptune does not know what is going on but she urges everyone to retreat.
After getting away, Elmia is glad she made it in time. Ever since the Sacred Treasure was taken, the monsters in the area have become really strong especially that boss holding the Sacred Treasure. If it starts rampaging for real then no one can stop it. However, if they had a high-grade Purification Arrow, they might be able to weaken it. She is sure the Chosen One can defeat it after that. Elmia notes that it would be good to post that to the guild but she had to keep weird mercenaries from getting close.
Elmia decides to head to the guild and warns everyone that this place is dangerous and urges everyone to be careful. Vert notes that they need to return to the city to accept the quest and once they have regrouped- The boss has caught up to CPU. Since they do not have the flags raised to fight this boss, Blanc urges them to run away.
Kiria and †Black Cat Princess† arrives. Kiria notes that they meet again. †Black Cat Princess† laughs and remarks that they are in a pickle. Vert tells the couple to be careful that the boss does not wipe them out. It is a quite a difficult event. Kiria laughs and cannot believe that she will be wiped out. †Black Cat Princess† also laughs. Kiria tells them to sit back and watch this round. †Black Cat Princess† tells them those that stand in their way will end up like this. The two make short work of the boss.
Kiria reports that they have obtained the Sacred Treasure. The two of them will be going on ahead. †Black Cat Princess† laughs and leaves them with a parting gift. Another boss appears. Vert wonders what is with that boss, and makes sure no one broke a branch. Neptune wonders why Vert would mention breaking branches, unless she meant summoning that boss, in which case such an item doesn't exist yet, at least she never saw it. Vert thinks they should just focus on the boss for now. CPU defeats the boss.
Bouquet appears and notes that something abnormal is going on with this floor's data. She asks if everything is okay. She realizes that its CPU and greets them kindly. Vert is glad to see her and guesses Bouquet is here as AI must check for bugs in the beta. Bouquet analyzes the data immediately to find the cause. After the analysis, Bouquet has no results. She does not know of the cause. Neptune complains that Bouquet has to break down now of all times. Vert tells Neptune that is not the case, patrolling around is not Bouquet's job. Bouquet confirms this, her job does include compiling a report as soon as she encounters an error. This is all very strange and Bouquet urges them to return to the city at once.
As they venture deeper into the dungeon, they see the same boss as multiple monsters. Neptune thinks that can't be right as they are heading back. Vert thinks it may the anomaly that Bouquet reported. They could fight them off. Blanc thinks that would be a useless battle. Vert leaves the decision up to Neptune.
Near the end of the dungeon, Bouquet reports that while traveling with CPU back to the city, she checked the library with the error but it was too large to load. She wants to report this to the GM so they check this out. She asks if that is okay. Vert is glad that she would as that would be much more reliable than just submitting an error report and thanks Bouquet. Bouquet asks them for to wait a moment and in place of Bouquet, the GM appears.
GM introduces herself as the 4 Goddesses Online Admin, and they may refer to her as Game Master or GM. GM thanks CPU for their help in the beta test and she explains that she has determined by the report that this error is urgent. She decided to see it for herself. Vert is pleased at the opportunity to meet an admin. She tells her she is a huge fan of 4 Goddesses Online and is looking forward to the implementation of the new version. Vert asks her to do her best. GM is thankful for her words and she begins to perform an analysis.
She announces to those logged in that in approximately 10 minutes, she will perform an emergency maintenance in the Yiear Sea of Trees area. She asks the players to avoid entering Yiear Sea of Trees for the duration of the maintenance. She apologizes for the inconvenience and thanks everyone for their cooperation. GM then personally apologizes to CPU that it would take some time until the end of the maintenance. Vert says she will continue to support the GM. GM thanks everyone.
Bouquet returns and explains that the story quest is now available. It takes place in another area so they should have no trouble progressing. To create the item to weaken the boss requires 3 ingredients. They should first head to the guild and accept the quest. CPU does just that.
After going to the guild, CPU accepts the quest to get the first of the three ingredients required to weaken the final Sacred Treasure boss. It takes place in Arodie Cavern. After collecting all the items for the quest, they return to the guild.
Back at the guild, CPU overhears Minor Players A and B discuss the Grim Reaper. Minor Player A got killed by the Grim Reaper. There was corrupted text so he couldn't read anything. Minor Player B thinks it is a shame as the two were starting to do well, they were sent back to the city. They have to fight the boss again and when they were defeated, their display went all weird for a moment. It was pretty spooky.
CPU takes the next quest for the ingredients. They are to hunt a Volcerios in Fiyar Mines for the ingredient, Shining Dragon Stone. A newbie player warns Neptune and Noire about to stay away from dungeons for a while. The rumor about the Grim Reaper is real. Neptune is interested and wants to know if he saw it. The newbie player has not seen it and since his level is low, he is just trying to level up in areas where it is less likely to appear.
In Fiyar Mines, Noire comments on the Grim Reaper being unsettling. Neptune thought Noire did not believe in occultish things. Noire does not but players seem to be struggling with this. She can't help but feel worried about this. Vert is also worried about the boss, but for now, they have to defeat the target monster and complete the quest.
Deeper in the dungeon, Uni notices the target monster. CPU defeats the target monster and acquires the Shining Dragon Stone. Vert notes that they can return to the guild now, or continue the quest in one go. She will leave the decision up to Neptune.
CPU takes the final quest to get the ingredient to create the Purification Arrow. They are to defeat a target monster in Hestie Crater. In the middle of the dungeon, Nepgear asks the other members what would happen if they were to run into the Grim Reaper. Would they be able to handle now as they are?
Neptune thinks if they can't beat him, they can run away. Even if they lose, they only get sent back to town so it is no big deal. Since the rumors have spread so far, Vert wants to defeat it if they were run into it. Later, CPU finds the target monster for the quest and beats it completing the quest then heads back to Wishuel.
Back in Wishuel, CPU reports their quest acquiring the Branch of Leanverde. Since they have all the ingredients Neptune reports that they only need to get the Purification Arrow. Noire thinks they should create the arrow first and if they are lucky the maintenance period should end. They should talk to Compa about this. Vert agrees with Noire as no one in their party is able to mix ingredients. It is a staple of online gaming to get help from other players.
Neptune returns to CPU in the middle of Wishuel with a newly made Purification Arrow. The GM then announces "This is a notice to all logged in players. The maintenance that was being conducted in Yiear Sea of Trees has safely concluded. Thank you for your co-operation." Neptune finds this perfect timing. Vert agrees and wants to hurry to Yiear Sea of Trees but first they should visit Bouquet. Neptune agrees and CPU heads to the Cathedral.
In the Cathedral, Vert spots Bouquet and is glad to see her again. Bouquet is glad to see Vert but she notes that she is working right now. Noire reports the rumors of the Grim Reaper instantly killing players and asks if Bouquet knows about that. Bouquet does and the GM has already received reports on it. Her investigations has not caught up to the Grim Reaper yet and she apologizes for continued inconvenience. On behalf of the administration Bouquet also apologizes.
CPU tells Bouquet to not to worry. They are always here to help and Bouquet should not hesistate to ask them for help. Bouquet thanks them for their concern and returning to the story, the last treasure is the Emerald Mirror. Should they acquire it, the Goddesses will soon return. The monsters are sure to guard it desperately. Something unexpected might happen.
Uni is looking forward to that sort of thrill. Ram will do her best as well as they can take care of any monsters. Rom is determined as they all came here together so they will be okay. Vert agrees as no matter what powerful enemy appears, they will safely retrieve the final Sacred Treasure. And when that final battle is over, Vert wants to go on a date with Bouquet. Bouquet is shocked. Neptune warns Vert that she is setting up a death flag. Blanc thinks her final words be along the lines of "I'll go check on the forest". Noire asks Bouquet not to make a salad in celebration of the Goddesses' return.
Vert asks the other Goddesses who do they think she is. They will get the Sacred Treasure safely and as sisters, Bouquet and her will go on a date. Bouquet stutters as she clarifies what Vert means by a date is something where they walk together, go shopping, eat out and be loveydovey. Vert confirms that is what she means and asks Bouquet if she willing to do that. Bouquet continues to stutter as she admits it sounds like fun but she has never been on a date before. She feels it is too soon for her.
Vert assures Bouquet as her escort, she will have no problems at all. Vert will wait for Bouquet's response. Bouquet will think about it. The other Goddesses also want to hang out with Bouquet at some point. Bouquet asks if that means everyone is requesting a date. At this rate, she might get an overflow error and brain begins to sizzle.
Noire asks if she is okay. If Bouquet went out on a date in this situation, she might pass out again. Blanc is most worried about her going out with Vert. Vert snickers as she has something to look forward to. She will break any death flag in half and do her best.
In Yiear Sea of Trees, Neptune wonders if getting the Sacred Treasure will mean that they will finish this episode. Noire and Blanc convince Neptune that the game will likely begin after they get the Sacred Treasures. Vert is glad that everyone understands and she too believes that the true game will begin once the Goddesses return.
Later in the dungeon, Vert points out that it seems like it has arrived. This time, they will defeat it. Neptune notes that as usual it looks super strong but they won't run. Neptune decides to use the Purification Arrow and the boss screams in pain. Neptune thinks it is working and believes they can defeat it now. She thanks the guard person for her help. Vert will Vert them all up. Neptune tells Vert not to steal her catchphrase. She paid good money for that.
CPU defeats the boss and Vert thinks this is a victory they achieved together. CPU acquires the Emerald Mirror. †Black Cat Princess† already knew they could do it. Kiria has a pained expression. Neptune is happy to see the couple and notes they have not seen each other in a while but she was thinking about them here and there. Neptune asks if they have been doing alright.
†Black Cat Princess† assures Neptune that they are. In fact there isn't a fragment of a possibility of them losing to someone else so her worry is needless. In fact it isn't her damn business. Neptune notices the grim expression and asks †Black Cat Princess† if she is feeling okay. Vert does not really need to ask but the two of them already obtained the Emerald Mirror. Noire finds it weird that they are wondering around a dungeon they already cleared. Blanc is sure they are just going to gloat in their face again.
†Black Cat Princess† agrees with Blanc, as they need to learn that she is much greater than them all. In fact she is going to beat this knowledge into their bones. Neptune understands people can get heated when they are being competitive but that is no reason to not be friends. Vert agrees with Neptune that it is best for fellow gamers to enjoy the game by helping each other out and competing on occasionally.
†Black Cat Princess† laughs at the idea that they are fellow gamers that will help each other. She declares that she is supreme in this world and there is no one who can compete on her level. She asks if they don't understand that there is a wall between a princess and a common player. They cannot overcome it. †Black Cat Princess† tells Kiria that to try out the new function of the tool now. Kiria does not feel right using it on actual players. †Black Cat Princess† tells her to stop grumbling and do it already. Kiria understands and will do everything for her sake. The two use the tool causing them to fuse and transform.
Vert remembers that monster from the main 4 Goddesses Online. It sparked a lot of controversy with the players which is why it was removed in patch 1.02. It is known as Cheetah. Noire thinks that is way too straightforward and thinks Vert is pulling her leg. Vert assures Noire it is that straightforward. It was meant as a joke that uses a cheetah as a motif. It was a play on the word "cheater". Back when admins were working on countermeasures for cheaters, they used Cheetah as a sandbag monster in events. At the end of the festival, the GM would fire the Cheetah and explode it as fireworks. That was their cheat eradication campaign.
Neptune gets worried as from the gist of that, it means the couple are... Vert praises Neptune for being perceptive, she did catch on one word in their conversation she won't let go. Blanc is sure she heard them use the word "tool". She wonders if they have access to a cheat tool. Uni summarizes this as the two are cheaters who have turned into... a cheetah. Are they seriously doing this for the sake of a pun?
Neptune begins to snicker but tries to hold it in. Noire can't contain her laughter as she asks Neptune what is she laughing about as this is hardly the time to... Blanc also can't contain her laughter agrees with Noire and they will make her... Vert can't contain her laughter as she scolds the other Goddesses for being rude. The two of them went through quite the spirited transformation. Neptune deflects this onto Uni as she started it. Uni thinks she should not have said anything. Neptune thinks it was just such an awful joke and she can't take it. She asks if she can just laugh a bit.
†Black Cat Princess† in Cheetah tells them not to laugh as their tool could not change how they look. It is not their fault. †Black Cat Princess† in Cheetah tells them that they should really watch their mouths. The two of them aren't going to be so kind like before. Kiria in Cheetah tries to reason with the princess as she does not think this is a good idea. †Black Cat Princess† in Cheetah tells Kiria to shut up and just control the thing. †Black Cat Princess† in Cheetah declares that they are truly unparalleled in 4 Goddesses Online and releases a burst of electricity.
Rom and Ram tell Cheetah to stay back. Neptune tells them to look alive. They should stop staring and start fighting. Neptune assures that it will work out, asks that it will work out and hopes it will work out. Alright, Neptune leads the charge against Cheetah.
CPU defeats Cheetah and their body begins crumble. Vert points out if they point their mind into it, they can do anything. Neptune wonders if the two of them will return to their normal form. Vert thinks it would be good if they can discuss this peacefully.
The Grim Reaper shows up breathing. Blanc notices the red eyes and blood lust and deduces that it is the Grim Reaper. Vert cannot be certain that this is the fabled Grim Reaper and thinks they should see how he moves. The Grim Reaper picks up Cheetah and leaves.
Neptune calls for Kiria and †Black Cat Princess† but it's no use as they are gone. Vert wonders what that means. Do monsters just kidnap other players now? Uni thinks that the Grim Reaper was an ally to Kiria and †Black Cat Princess† and came to their rescue. Noire believes the Cheetah is likely controlled by another cheater. Blanc thinks it is best to report this to the GM. Vert agrees and wants to see Bouquet's face in order to find peace after what happened.
CPU returns to Wishuel and decides to visit the Cathedral. Vert thinks it is time to report to Bouquet as well as see the next story event. It should be in that area. Bouquet arrives and is glad to see everyone. Firstly she congratulates them on collecting all 4 Sacred Treasures. Vert thanks Bouquet as it was thanks to her info. Bouquet tells Vert not to say that as she hasn't done much. They have themselves to thank as it was by their power. Now the time has come, they must hold the ceremony to revive the Goddesses and soon as there may have been enemy movements.
The Paramount Pair have finally awoken and they are working towards the destruction of the world. Bouquet shows CPU a personal description of them. Bouquet warns that if the Demon King's forces catches wind of the Goddesses' revival, they will surely interfere. Before the enemy organizes themselves, Bouquet asks them to hurry to the Altar of Goddesses in Tetyu Temple.
Vert tells Bouquet that they have progressed the story safely so far but they encountered a fair amount of errors in their previous quest. Bouquet worries and asks if that means another abnormality has occurred again. Blanc tells her it was not an abnormality but it was illegal behavior carried out by other players. Bouquet can't believe it, the defenses against such an activity should be impenetrable. She wants to know more details. Neptune tells her that players by the name of Kiria and †Black Cat Princess† turned out the be a conniving couple of Cheetah cheaters. Bouquet does not understand what Neptune is trying to say.
Noire admits it is hard to explain but essentially the players used a cheat tool to transform themselves into a Cheetah. Neptune says that was what she was trying to say. They were Cheetah cheaters! After that happened, they attacked CPU. Blanc reports that they fought them off but they were taken away by a monster that looks like the Grim Reaper from the rumors. Could it be that they were working together? Bouquet notes that the administration is investigating the Grim Reaper but... for now she will check everyone's logs. She asks them to wait a moment. Bouquet notices that the data is flowing in a strange direction.
Bouquet's voice turns robotic and she alerts that an unexpected error has occurred. She will terminate NPC control system. Vert gets worried and asks Bouquet what is wrong. The GM appears and apologizes for barging in on them like this. However, an error greater than what the AI's auto repair can handle has occurred. It might take some time to repair so she apologizes for the inconvenience. She has also verified the reports of unauthorized tool usage and thanks them for their cooperation before teleporting away.
Neptune is shocked by how quickly she came and left. She wonders if everything is alright. Noire thinks at the very least that their reports were verified. Blanc thinks they should leave this to the GM. They should keep progressing the story. The next destination is appearing now. Rom really wants to see the Goddesses and Ram agrees. Neptune reports that it is settled, they will leave the heavy lifting to the GM. Vert is worried about Bouquet but she won't believe in such flags. The next time they meet, she will a response about the date.
CPU accepts the quest to deliver the 4 Sacred Treasures to Tetyu Temple. Since they have made it this far, Blanc is ready for whatever the game throws at them. Vert agrees as they have overcome all the trials so far. No matter what enemy shows up, Uni says she will blast them away with her guns. Neptune is glad everyone is full of fighting spirit and leads them to Tetyu Temple.
In Tetyu Temple, Vert asks if it is possible for the Paramount Pair to interfere with the revival. Blanc thinks the monsters wandering inside the temple could be their troops. Neptune remembers that Bouquet said that the Paramount Pair were still gathering their forces. They are still waiting in the wings. Noire tells Neptune they do not know that. They don't know who will show up but they should proceed carefully.
CPU makes it to the Altar of Goddesses and Bouquet welcomes them. Vert is glad to see Bouquet and asks if she is feeling okay. If Bouquet needs any special care then she should let Vert know. Bouquet admits that she does not remember what happened last time. She asks what happened. Nepgear explains that they reported a problem and and error occurred during her analysis. Perhaps her memory around the time was reset.
Bouquet understand that they are referring to the case, the GM is currently investigating. Vert is relieved. Bouquet asks them to forgive her for worrying them. Neptune is ready to awaken the Goddesses. Bouquet asks them to place the 4 Sacred Treasures in the altar. Blanc thinks they should set it down in order. Neptune prefers putting it all down at once. Vert agrees with Neptune but wants them to do as pairs of sisters.
Neptune points out that Vert would be left out but realizes that Vert may be after her sister. She refuses to let Vert take Nepgear. Vert tells Neptune she misconstrues her words. Nepgear will pair up with Neptune and her partner will be Bouquet. Bouquet is shocked and she is a NPC. There is no way she can take part in the story for the players. Vert eases her concerns as she is just placing her hand on the Sacred Treasure. More importantly, she is a friend who progressed the story with them. Vert wants to revive the Goddesses with her. Bouquet understands and asks everyone to stand by the altar.
Vert tells Bouquet that this is fateful. The first mission the two complete together is the one where the Goddesses will be revived. Bouquet is determined to try her best. Vert laughs and tells Bouquet not to be so stiff. Neptune tells everyone on two, they will offer the Sacred Treasures. On two, everyone offers the Sacred Treasure and Neptune is in awe. Bouquet reports that the door to the Divine Realm has opened. The earth and Divine Realm are connected by a rainbow bridge.
Noire knows that this is just an event in the game but it does feel like quite the accomplishment. Vert thinks it is still too early to celebrate, they need to meet the Goddesses. Neptune agrees and everyone goes to the Divine Realm.
In the Divine Realm. Purple Heart tells the Chosen Ones have done well to come this far. They have been waiting a very long time for the day they would meet. The in-game Goddesses chat with the Chosen Ones they are based on and CPU assures the Goddesses that they are ready to fight the Demon King. Green Heart understands the intentions of the Chosen Ones. Green Heart believes they will see this through and with the Goddesses' return to earth, they will provide the Chosen Ones with more protection and greater power. Vert thanks the Goddesses. If the Goddesses are controlled by the AI, Vert hopes to have a proper conversation. Vert is impressed so far.
Black Heart notes that the Demon King's power is great but if everyone is united in battle, they have a chance in victory. White Heart urges everyone to gather their strength and defeat the Demon King. Green Heart tells them the time for the final battle is soon. It is time for the Goddesses to descend to Alsgard. Vert notes Bouquet will be looking forward to meeting them all. CPU's firepower has increased and Neptune thinks the Demon King is nothing compared to them. Purple Heart laughs and she promises on behalf of the Goddesses that she will show them the power of the Goddesses. Nepgear thinks it is expected that both Neptunes make a great combo.
The Goddesses all return to the altar. Bouquet welcomes everyone back and notes that it is such a honor to behold the countenances of the Goddesses. She asks them to please put an end to the evils in this world. Purple Heart thinks Bouquet has done well to guide this world as the Royal Geist. She wants her to continue her good work. Bouquet promises that she always will. The Goddesses join CPU and return to Wishuel.
Back in Wishuel, White Heart comments on how frickin long it has been since they were last here. She can't even remember the last time she was here. Blanc is concerned with White Heart's language. White Heart asks Blanc if she has a problem with her language. It is how she talks and Blanc just has to deal with it. Blanc is disappointed as she preferred the way White Heart spoke in the Divine Realm.
White Heart explains that she was only speaking like that because Green Heart kept on yappin' to her about watching their mouth when they're actin' as Goddesses. Green Heart scolds White Heart for her language. White Heart is a divine guide and should act like one. Neptune notes that she's like the eldest of the 4 Goddesses. Vert adds that if Green Heart has 3 younger sisters then she is quite jealous. However, Vert is quite sure that the other Goddesses are treated as sisters.
Bouquet arrives and is glad that they have safely returned from the ruins. She introduces the 4 Goddesses to Wishuel, a hub for adventurers. The 4 Goddesses are eager to protect the city that still believes in them to this day.
Bouquet knows that the Goddesses have just returned but they are approaching the ultimate battle with Demon King. They have overcome many different trials until now and with all their strength Bouquet truly believes they can save this world. Green Heart reports that the Demon King's captains have built a gate to the Demon Realm at Atlio City Ruins. It is possible they are trying to revive him as well. White thinks they should get there immediately before he revives. Purple Heart tells White Heart that is difficult as there is a barrier up that prevents outsiders from entering.
Bouquet tells them that it is the Demon King's captains, the Paramount Pair, who are maintaining the barrier. Rom remembers Bouquet showing them pictures of the Paramount Pair. She is determined to fight the armor guy and the cow guy. Vert understands that they have their personal description but they do not know the skills they use.
Noire assures Vert as that they have fought bosses without knowing too much about their skills. It'll be fine. Bouquet tells them to be careful. They did receive reports that the Paramount Pair are hiding in a different dimension. Green Heart thinks that is a job for the Goddesses. They will triangulate their location based on the waves of evil they radiate. Vert is happy to leave the navigation to the Goddesses and they will prepare for the quest. Bouquet tells them once they are ready, they should stop by the Cathedral.
